Were You Injured by a Defective Product?
The millions of products bought and sold every day are meant to be safe
to consumers. Products must be manufactured, labeled and marketed in accordance
with state and federal laws.
Defective products, dangers that are not included on the label and false marketing can influence
consumers to not only buy these dangerous products, but to place their
personal health and well-being at risk. For example, if a drug does not
have all of its side effects labeled, an innocent individual could be
seriously injured from a deadly side effect causing injury, illness, or
death. A dedicated attorney from our team can provide you or a loved one with

About Defective Products
Defective products are those that cause injuries to consumers who have
read their warnings and instructions, and are using them properly.
There are three classifications that the state of California recognizes
for product defects:
These occur at the manufacturing stage of the product when the company
neglects to make the product safe. This means that product is not safe
to use or operate when it is being used correctly. For example, if a consumer
is using a blender and the blade comes off the bottom injuring them then
it may constitute a manufacturing defect.
This kind of defect means the actual design of the product makes it unreasonably
dangerous. Small handles on knives, improper guards on power tools, and
minimal guards on car jumper cables are good examples of design defects.
Marketing Defects or Misrepresentation:
Incorrectly labeled products, inadequate directions, or false claims about
a product are good representations of a marketing defect. Drug companies
are often guilty of this as they neglect to properly label or report side effects.
